Paul Merson speaks about Arsene Wenger and a quite transfer window

Reacting to another quiet transfer window at the Emirates Stadium, the Arsenal legend summed up how all Gooners were feeling on Tuesday evening after their side became the only one in Europe’s top five leagues not to sign an outfield player.

Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ, he said: ‘Arsenal, if they went and paid £80 million for Benzema, they’d get him. Now why not pay it?’

‘They’ve got the money there, go on, win the Premier League and be an absolute massive threat in the Champions League.

‘They haven’t done any of that and I feel the fans are getting cheated a little bit because they’re playing top dollar and they’re not bringing anyone in.

‘I mean, £10million. That’s like Accrington Stanley buying someone for £100.’

It is clear that the impatience is not only growing in the fans but also the former players and pundits. It is clear that not having to spend money will leave you behind in the race of the big horses.
